22 year old with unexplained acute renal failure

I am a 22 year old female. In 2012 I was taken by ambulance to the hospital where I spent a little over a week. I was diagnosed with acute renal failure. I awoke from a coma like state to a left ear I could no longer hear out of. I've gotten several kidney infections since this hospitalization. I get hot flashes and joke with my coworkers that I'm going through menopause. I get light headed l. I always feel tired and fatigued. My heart has an irregular heart beat and I feel chest pains and palpations occasionally. I recently got a health screening where they found my blood sugar to be extremely low. I I went to the doctor for a physical. They tested my blood levels. They called me immediately the next day and told me if I have any of the symptoms I explained above to go to the er. The doctor asked if I eat well or if I'm on a diet. I eat very well.. like really well. I eat alot and I eat fruits, veggies, meat,  bread, dairy. I exercise 4 out of 7 days a week. I weigh 130 lbs and am 5'6. My friends always make fun of me for the fact that I eat so much and NEVER gain weight, unless I gain muscle. Cancer runs on both sides of the family. Both my father parents died of different types of cancer, my father has prostate cancer, my mom's mother died of breast cancer, and several people outside of our immediate family have cancer. My mother is relatively healthy, as far as we know. I randomly get shard pains in my back where my kidneys are, this happens fairly often. I get extremely sharp pains in my upper abdominal area in the middle of my breasts about an inch down, that happens occasionally
